From the Principal’s desk…
Welcome to P.S. 139’s web page. The Rego Park School is certainly noted as the place where dreams begin. We are extremely proud of our reputation as a school of excellence with high standards for our students, teachers, and staff.
We exemplify a caring community that brings out the best in each learner. We celebrate our diversity and embrace its strength each and every day. Our goal is to help our students become strong readers and writers by providing a rigorous Balanced Literacy program through Teachers College, Columbia University.
Literacy and critical thinking skills drive P.S. 139. These components are an integral part of the learning experience. In addition, we believe strongly in celebrating the richness and depth of the arts in cultivating well rounded individuals. We believe strongly that the arts are the gateway to learning and enhance classroom instruction.
As a school community deeply committed to excellence, we see ourselves on a continuum of improvement. We strive to listen to many voices and embrace collective responsibility. We are reflective in practice and engage in thoughtful dialogue through the home-school connection. Parents and guardians play a significant role and partnership in promoting student learning.
At P.S. 139, we are all about the children. Remember, there is no place like The Rego Park School!
From the Assistant Principal’s desk…
I am so happy to be the Assistant Principal at such a wonderful school. Both the staff and the students work very hard here to keep up the high academic standards. Every month Mrs. Meade and I are invited to the Writing Celebrations in the classrooms. That is a time to share the hard work that the students have done throughout the unit in writing. Each class has a writing celebration where the children share and comment on their work and the work of their classmates. P.S. 139 is truly a community of learners.
As you walk around the building, you may see classrooms with Student Observers and Student Teachers. They are presently attending area colleges. These students are here to get first hand experience in the classrooms. The classroom teachers work with them to model different strategies and styles of teaching.
